Desires are unleashed, tensions suspended and lines of connection macraméd in Bunny, an interactive performance using rope.
Dance provocateurs Luke George (Erotic Dance 2016, Festival of Live Art) and Daniel Kok (Singapore) exploit the physical properties of rope and knots to unpick the boundaries of desire, trust, consent and communion between artist and audience, ‘Bunny’ and ‘Rigger’.
Staged in the round, the web of technicoloured ropes draws performer and audience into an increasingly enveloping bind. ‘Bunny’ is a nickname given to the person being tied in rope bondage. This work asks, “What if everyone in the theatre is a Bunny?”
